The day AFTER Christmas...

Well it's been a slow one, but still quite eventful...

Today, the boyfriend and I, (yes I said boyfriend, but we will get to that in a minute) woke up to the lovely chore of trying to dry out his Blackberry which he unceremonously decided to let fall into the toilet at 4 am. At 7 am he decided it was time to wake me to help him to take it apart and get it dried out to see if it still worked. And I gotta tell you, he got a CHRISTMAS Miracle! It works...PERFECTLY!

After that (well, 2 and a half hours later), we decided to get out of the house and get some lunch and hit Old Navy, where I scored come Sweetheart Cords for $12 each and a couple of cute T's for $4 each, then we hit the bank, Sprouts and Wal-Mart to get some food in the house for the week ahead. Along the way, we went by Mom and Dad's and my mom being the superwoman that she is, said she'd hem my new bargin-buy pants for me! SCORE--Thanks Mom!

We came home and I made dinner, One Pot Creamy Chicken Pasta, and Frizzle (Italian Antipasta salad with dried out bread). The OPCCP is a Pampered Chef recipe and really really easy and yummy! The honey really enjoyed it!

We were planning to go see "It's Complicated" at 9:25, but the boy just decided to wake up, so we may not make it to that one and are trying to decide if the 10:20 movie still sounds as good! But I did wake the boy up and the puppy is now crying (oh yeah, another story) because he put her back in her bed...I'll let you know the outcome!

Moving on to the boyfriend story...

Well, Jarrod and I have been dating now for over 3 months and I have to say, he as close to perfect as I could ever dream of getting. He is kind, loving, thoughful, a great father and an all-around wonderful person. He has a heart of gold and would do anything for just about anyone! He has met the parents, and the grandmother (all of which who think he's pretty neat, just like me) and we got the opportunity to spend not only all day Christmas Evetogether, which he helped me in hosting 13 people for dinner in my tiny little house, but he also got to experience a Hadges Family Christmas at Mom and Dad's. I am happy to report, he SURVIVED, and a little birdie told me the patriarch of the family was wispering to the others that he liked him...YIPEE!! FINALLY...they approve! I would say, so far, this guys has the seal of approval from all the right people!

Now, if I can just figure out what exactly he has up his sleeve for V-Day! All I know so far is that I had to take off work on the 12th, find a sitter for Austin for the weekend, I will be enduring a 6 hour drive which will leave me in a destination in AZ, but I may travel into another state along the way! SEE? It's a toughie! Any thoughts?
